Energos

Environmental Performance

We deliver plants that have consistently low emissions

The ENERGOS design simultaneously achieves:

  • low and stable carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions
  • average NOx emissions are typically 25-35% of the EU limit
  • ultra low dioxin emissions, typically less than 5% of the EU limit
  • low carbon content in the bottom ash, approx. 1% We guarantee less than 3% TOC

Constant emissions monitoring

All energy from waste plants in Europe operate under a licence from the national environment agency. They must undergo third-party tests every six months in addition to constant emissions monitoring (CEM).

The results of these tests show that our plants consistently operate at levels which are substantially lower than the emission limits given in the European Unions Waste Incineration Directive (WID) 2000/76/EC.

Example of an emissions performance test

This is a summary of an emissions performance test: the EU limit is represented by the 100% on the vertical axis and each of the pollutants is shown on the horizontal axis.
